Every Friday, the PQ Weekly Roundup collects the most shared links in our social media network—bookish articles, reviews, quizzes, recommendations and more—in convenient digest form.
- Nothing like a little awards news to perk up an author—or a porcupette! We were pleased to see Frances Boyle’s Seeking Shade and Ed Seaward’s Fair on the 2021 ReLit Awards long shortlist.
- Speaking of big awards news, Frances Boyle’s Seeking Shade is on the 2020 Danuta Gleed Literary Awards shortlist, among some pretty great company.
- In less uplifting news, here’s a pretty eye-opening look at the financial inducements (or lack thereof) for becoming a writer.
- But let’s not forget, it’s National Poetry Month. Can you imagine the difficulty of incorporating 400 different voices into a poem celebrating the coming of spring?
- And finally, a reminder that we can have nice things! We’ve got some very pretty poetry broadsides available for you (yes you!) to download for free (yes free!) in the eStore. They’re even better with copies of the books from which each broadside is taken.
We’re riding high on a pretty great week. We hope yours is just as good. If not, brighten if up with a little poetry! Remember to take advantage of our 50% off poetry eBooks sale in the eStore with coupon code NPM2021.
